Cougar News Services

The turnover rate among UH administrators continued to escalate when former Executive Director of Affirmative Action and Equal Employment
Ileana Trevino was named the University's new Vice Chancellor/Vice President for University Advancement.

Trevino's appointment will next be submitted to the UH System Board of Regents for approval during its February meeting. Trevino will replace
Kathy Stafford, who resigned the position effective Dec. 21 to pursue other interests.

"Trevino brings great skills in management as well as in internal and external relationship building, which are so critical for a strong university
advancement program," UH System Chancellor and UH President Arthur K. Smith said. "She has clearly demonstrated that she has the
leadership qualities and administrative skills needed at this time by both the UH System and the UH main campus.

"I believe that (her) addition to our senior management team will allow us to do extraordinary things with the opportunities and resources that the
state of Texas and the city of Houston can potentially make available with this university."

Trevino had held her position in the Office of Affirmative Action and Equal Employment Opportunity since 1998.

She has also served as deputy director for equal employment at the National Institute of Health in Washington, D.C.

Trevino has close ties to the Houston community and has been active as a national representative for Hispanic issues. She served two terms
1987 through '88 and 1996 through '97 while on the U.S. Senate Task Force on Hispanic Affairs.

She attended Boston College where she earned her Bachelor of Arts before going on to Boston University to earn a Master of Arts degree. She
also received UH's Chancellors Equity Award for outstanding performance in '99.
